General Electric wants a bigger slice of the solar power market with the introduction of their new thin-film solar panels alongside relevant accompanying equipment. These thin-film solar panels were made in conjunction with PrimeStar Solar, where it will hit the mass market from next year onwards. Cadmium telluride cells would be the material of choice, where these thin-film solar panels are meant for utility-scale solar projects. General Electric aims to market its solar panels to both utilities and consumers, and will work on phasing out its current operations of manufacturing solar panels with the help of silicon solar cells. Good luck to GE, we hope they succeed so that solar power gets more affordable for everyone, even those living in Third World countries.
